Description

The chimneys of industry rise over Adua, and the world seethes with new opportunities. But old scores run deep as ever.

On the blood-soaked borders of Angland, Leo dan Brock struggles to win fame on the battlefield and defeat the marauding armies of Stour Nightfall. He hopes for help from the crown. But King Jezal's son, the feckless Prince Orso, is a man who specialises in disappointments.

Savine dan Glokta - socialite, investor and daughter of the most feared man in the Union - plans to claw her way to the top of the slag-heap of society by any means necessary. But the slums boil over with a rage that all the money in the world cannot control.

The age of the machine dawns, but the age of magic refuses to die. With the help of the mad hillwoman Isern-i-Phail, Rikke struggles to control the blessing, or the curse, of the Long Eye. Glimpsing the future is one thing, but with the guiding hand of the First of the Magi still pulling the strings, changing it will be quite another....

Back to familiar grounds!

I've been waiting for what seems as an eternety for this book. I can easely say that its the read Ive most looked forward to in my whole life (I consider the first law books my favourite triology) and when Steven Pacey starts reading in my ears its like Im taken back to the days when I first encountered the First Law books. And for all the wonderful nostalgia I end up with a familiar feeling when I reach the end, as if I was re-reading part of the books that came before. It could be the overwhelming cast of old characters that are present in the story, or that the events are somewhat similar to what has come before in other Abercrombie books. But it is, as always, the characters that Joe Abercronbie dreams up (that sometimes give me nightmares) that help carry the somewhat thin plot forward, and I never felt bored. Its with huge expectations that I await the rest of this planned triology to see how it all evolves!

+Great characters
+Steven Paceys performance
+Great setting

-Wished the story would've evolved more
-Thought it to be a bit short
-Felt a bit too familiar at times.

Makes the whole First Law series even better

To be honest, I went in to this with a little low expectations. I know that Joe wrote a different series in a different world, and thought "Well, that didn't work out, so now he's back to milk his cash cow". (And I'm sorry now, that is not the case!). I preferred the original First Law trilogy, always having a bit of a hard time adjusting to the new characters in the second "trilogy" - which I also consider a mistake on my behalf.

After reading this, I'm suddenly in awe of what Joe Abercrombie has created and the way he writes funny yet grim, intelligent yet digestable and dark yet hopeful. No one writes POV's so convincingly, I think. The way you understand everyones viewpoints and can empathise with all the very different characters is just amazing. He has a way of making the plot turn and twist at just the right time, and when there's a twist it seems so natural and realistic, even though you didn't see it coming at all. (Much like reality...)

I really want to go back and read all the previous books to really understand all the different characters and references I most certainly missed in this - and to appreciate it the way it's supposed to. Perfect.

Other similar stuff I like: Riyria Revelations+Chronicles, Stormlight Archives, The Gentlemen Bastards.

The best fantasy writer at the moment.

I love all his books but this one is even better. As are many I'm also deeply disappointed by the pace GRRM writes his books. Joe Abercrombie his works should've been translated into an HBO series as well...

Good, but not as good as the first 3 books

I already knew this book was unlikely to be as good as the first 3 (The Blade itself, Before they are hanged and Last argument of Kings). Those are the best audio books I´ve ever listened to, except Douglas Adam reading his own Hitchhiker series :)

But if you keep expectations down and dont just sit and wait for a glimpse of Sand Dan Glokta, Logan 9 finger, Bias, or whoever was your favorite characters, "A little hatred" is worth the credit and you´ll at least get a little fix of the world you learned about in the previous books AND few of the guys are in this one too, only just in passing, so theres that..:).

One of the best books I have ever read

Absolute delight fron start to finish, the performance was also masterful. Packed with action, humor, emotion, but also surprisingly delicate and philosophical. Ingenious book!

Amazing as always

If you like the rest of Joe Abercrombie’s work you’ll like this. The writing is tight and people are, if not relatable, at least believable. Joe Abercrombie still corners the market on gritty dark bloody low-magic fantasy.

Abercrombie - how I’ve longed...

... for his extended imagination, his remarkable language (and no, English is not native to me), his deeply enjoyable characters - come to life through mr Pacey’s superior acting. Better than any movie, although IF it would be, GoT would look like child’s play.

Fantastisch!

Mir war gar nicht klar, dass dieses Buch auch wieder in der Welt von The First Law spielt. Ich hab es einfach gekauft, weil es von Joe Abercrombie ist, was mir als Grund absolut reicht. ;-) Ich war also begeistert wieder auf ein paar der alten Weggefährten zu treffen, wenn auch nur in Nebenrollen. Die neuen Hauptrollen sind aber ebenfalls interessante, gut ausgearbeitete Charaktere, deren Gedanken und Unterhaltungen mit der richtigen Portion Witz gespickt sind und auf deren weiteres Schicksal ich schon sehr gespannt bin. Wer die anderen Bücher aus diesem Universum noch nicht gelesen hat, sollte dies meiner Meinung nach erst tun. Man kann A little hatred zwar sicher auch ohne Vorkenntnis genießen, aber mehr Spaß macht es wahrscheinlich mit. Steven Pacey erzählt die Geschichte super mit Stimmenvielfalt und Dialekten. Ich kann die Fortsetzung kaum erwarten!

Unübertreffbar

Wer glaubt, dass Abercrombie mit seinem schon geschaffenen Megaepos das Sujet ausgereizt hat, wird überrascht werden.
30 Jahre nach dem Ende seiner Trilogie ‚the first law’ trifft die neue Generation auf noch lebende alte Gesichter, allesamt in ihren Persönlichkeiten bi/multipolar gezeichnet, und in unvorhersehbaren Wendungen hin und hergebeutelt. Unnachahmlicher Sarkasmus, das Einarbeiten sozialkritischer und zeitgeschichtlicher Komponenten und ein mE immer besser werdender Pacey machen das Ganze zu einem großen Hörerlebnis.
Ist Abercrombie schon für den Literaturnobelpreis vorgeschlagen? Ja ? Nein?
You have to be realistic...

Too much class struggle

Abercrombie took his time to get over that overdose of class struggle. After that, it felt as good as always.

Back to the roots, back to Glory!

This was a great beginning for the new trilogy. New and great characters are introduced while the old ones take second rank.
There are some references but you don´t need to read previous first law books to get into this story, although I would recommend them anyway.
Exellent narration by Steven Pacey can´t wait for the next.

A spectacular new beginning

The new beginning in the first law world is spectacular. The new characters are great and they show inevitable promise, the old ones didn't lose a smidgen of their excellence. What I love about Joe Abercrombie is that he doesn't need to end his books in a cliffhanger to make the waiting between them almost painful.
To say Steven Pacey is a great narrator it's an understatement and that doesn't stop him to raise the bar with every book he narrates.
This book series is shaping up to be one of the greatest stories ever told.

es ist keine Fantasy!

sehr interessante Geschichte!
ich habe fast alle Bücher von Joe Abbercromie (oder wie sein Name geschrieben ist), aber ich hasse, dass alles als high-fantasy klassifiziert ist. daher die schlechte Bewertung.

Genialer Neuanfang

mit einem brillanten Sprecher. Die Geschichte mal wieder sehr gespickt mit Gewalt aber eine Fülle interessanter Charaktere und viele Geschichten in einer.
